Graphic Card Compatibility

I have a computer that's on the upwards of 6 years old. The model was created 2/7/02 according to the date on the back of the computer. The model of the computer that we found was Gateway ATXAEG LX2 700x, serial number 0027689396 {if that possibly helps} I went to Best Buy today {2/12/08} to buy a new graphics card since mine is going on the fritz, and the one I planned to buy was not compatible according to the man who helped me. My question is this: What graphic card could I buy that's compatible with this specific computer? And, if I need to, can I order a card for it directly from Gateway?

I have compaq sg3530il desktop and i want to know which graphic card is compatible with my computer ?


You must contact the manufacturer of the computer (HP) for compatibility and recommendations for a graphic card. Go to the HP website and click support and send them an email. Only the manufacturer can give you a straight answer. HP bought out Compaq several years ago, so I'm sure it would be HP to contact.

Hello,

Unfortunately, according to ATI this particular card does not support Model 2.0

Looks like you need at least a Radeon 9400/9500

I wish I had better news.

Not likely... most warranties are for defect in manufacturing and last one year up to maybe 3 years and only with proof of purchase showing the date.

Geforce mx400 driver for windows 7


Windows 7 already has the best driver possible for your board (got installed when you installed Windows). Therefore, you won't find anywhere Windows 7 drivers for your video card.
Still, I took a better look at your video card specs and I noticed it doesn't have Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) because at the manufacturing date of your board WDDM had not yet been created. So, I'm sorry to tell you this, but your video card doesn't meet the system requirements for Windows 7.

I want a compatible video card for my pc


This sounds like your computer may be several years old and the hardware a little outdated. It will depend on the game since today's latest games require not only 3d-acceleration but super fast acceleration as given by "NVIDIA" or "ATI"'s latest graphic cards.

If you are running a relatively simple game, you need to see if your computer uses which type of graphic card connector.

In the old days it was PCI, then came AGP and later PCI Express.

What the above will tell you is which 3d graphic card type to buy. You can get a graphic card at newegg.com or lots of other places varying in speed and capacity.

Monitor screen freeze with driver...


hi! you don't need to update the driver cause the problem is in your hardware. Graphic seems to be a bit grounded, try cleaning the contact pins of your AGP graphic card with eraser, clean it side by side and then put it back again to an AGP slot, then boot your CPU again. If it still the same, try it in another motherboard that support you graphic card just to be sure before we conclude that its the graphic card has the problem. Anyway if it still under warranty you can claim for a replacement to the store where you bought the graphic card.  Have a nice day!

Install HD3870 graphic card


Follow these steps:

Uninstall current graphics card drivers. Before you install your new card, you'll need to uninstall your current graphics card's drivers to avoid any potential conflicts. Right-click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware tab, find the button to open the Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed under the Display Adapter heading. Double-click the name of your graphics card to open a properties window for your current card. Last step: Under the Driver tab, click the Uninstall button.


Remove old card. Turn off your PC and unplug it from the wall. Open the case Make sure you first ground yourself by first touching a metal part of your PC case or by wearing an antistatic wrist strap. (Grounding yourself will prevent you from getting shocked and from unintentionally damaging your PC's components.) If you are replacing a graphics card, you'll need to remove a small screw attached to the back plate prior to taking out the card.

Install new card. It wouldn't hurt to page through your new card's instruction manual at this point. Then, take your new graphics card out of its foil wrapper and slide it into your motherboard's slot. Press down firmly with even force until it is securely in place (your system won't boot up unless the card is in all the way). Screw it into the back plate and close up your case.

Install new drivers. Turn on your PC and install the drivers. Windows XP should automatically recognize the new hardware and walk you through the installation wizard. If Windows doesn't detect the card, click Settings from the Start menu. Open the Control Panel and click Add Hardware. From there, a wizard will help you install the new drivers from the CD that came bundled with your new card. It's a good idea to check the graphic card vendor's Web site for more up-to-date drivers, just in case the vendor has released drivers since manufacturing your card. Once you've downloaded the drivers, simply restart your PC. Now, you're ready to start gaming.

If this doesnt work, then your card is BAD.
